Chicago Calling

A film by John Reinhardt
Starring Dan Duryea, Mary Anderson, Gordon Gebert

Noir favorite Dan Duryea gives perhaps his greatest performance as a down-on-his-luck alcoholic in Los Angeles who gets word that his wife and daughter have been in a car accident in Chicago. As he waits by the phone for news of their fate, all manner of circumstance conspires to torture him even further, from bill collectors to the phone company to a “helpful” little boy. A minor-key noir-stained classic, made memorable by Duryea’s deeply affecting performance.
